Or call ahead to the Visitor Center to see if it is operation. They take up all the water lilies and store them... More

Ken Landon displays some of the world's most beautiful and often rarest water lilies. In bloom, this display is a must-see. If you need a few hours to chill, this tranquil collection is the place to visit.

One of the best kept secrets of San Angelo. The water lilies are the most beautiful I have seen anywhere and there are many more of them than in any other places I have been.

One of a kind. You don't expect to see water lilies in this part of Texas, so you will be facinated by the beauty. This is a place the Monarch butterflies stop on their migration.

Visit this beautiful water garden every time I'm in San Angelo! They have some water lilies that are over three feet in diameter and I have never seen a better display of water lilies than in San Angelo!
